The Joint Action Committee on Trade Unions University of Nigeria Nsukka made up of Academic Staff Union (ASUU) and Non Academic Staff Union of the University and Inter centres (NASU) have called for probe and immediate removal of Batho Okolo, the vice chancellor for maladministration.
The unions also called for the removal of Olufumi A. Brown whose reposting to the university as the representative of the minister was according to the union, done in bad taste.
According to them, “the same woman served in the inglorious Igwe-led council that destroyed the culture of transparency and accountability in the University and institutionalised regimented monarchist era rooted in impunity and disregard to University Regulations.”
JAC condemned in its entirety the continued complicity of highly placed officers from the ministry of education in looting and undermining accountability in the university, saying that some miscreants collide with the VC to cover some open cases of fraud in the university.
They said that the VC disbanded the students’ union government so that he will not be checked over his excesses in the university and thereby called for the immediate reconstitution of the students’ union government without further delay.
Ifeanyichukwu Abada, chairman, ASUU-UNN in an address read to the press, said that the list of the VC’s atrocities is endless and that they have since presented few of them to the University Council but regretted that the Council is facing frustration arising from the uncooperative attitude of the administration.
The Union decried the prostrate state of affairs in all the administrative units, departments, faculties and directorates and condemned the tendency by the administration to deprive these units/departments and faculties of the goods and services meant to run them.
However, in the recent press briefing by the VC, he claimed that the University is doing well financially. The Vice Chancellor pointed out that the university purchased new liaison office and business facilities capable of generating over N2 billion annually for the university among other facilities.
